37. "When it comes to weapons and 90+% of America"

 

So you are saying that only 10 percent of the American people are somehow, according to your criteria, worthy of the ability to defend one self?

That the remainder are to be rendered defenseless?

"for no reason whatsoever"


You must be lucky, for you live in a crime free bubble.

I have news for you, the rest of us do not.

the bloodbath of gun violence in this country


Also a newsflash - crime has been dropping steadily since the 1990s, along with the increased availability of right-to carry laws in many states. Only a small handful of jurisdictions nationwide do not make concealed carry licenses available for regular citizens.

"us vs. those who have less than us"


Utter nonsense. Concealed handgun licensees have a lower violent crime rate than any demographic in the nation, including police officers.

They are of all walks of life, of all religions, nationalities, skin tones, etc. You would be surprised who is legally packing heat out there, and it's no more or less likely to be a white male than anyone else.
